Cross season is winding down and I've been hearing "plans" for road season the past month. By July all I will be hearing about is the "plans" for cyclocross. Bike racing is fun, mostly because as seasons change, you get a redo, a start over, start fresh deal. Most sustainable hobbys have a season. I don't play video games, or build model cars, but I can see how since there is no season for these activities, there gets to be a burnout and you quit completely, or for a while.
If you are a planner, cycling should make you happy. You get to plan out your equipment, your races, your training plans, there are lot's of ways to plan. I hate planning. I don't know what I am going to do on my birthday in 4 days and I am ok with that.
What I do like planning for is equipment. There are so many options for all kinds of goals.
Whenever I have a break, like when I am at Melissa's parents house and the kids are in there bath, I look at bikerumor.com.
